Just booked my flight, got an awesome rate, only $165! I also booked the 4th of July reception. :D Anyone else doing that?

Wow, $165 is fantastic! But make sure the bungee cords they use to tie you to the wing are good and tight!

Don't think we (Mike & I) are doing the July 4th dealio.

No kidding! It was a little nerve-wracking booking something that cheap. I kept looking at it thinking, "Where's the catch?" :? I could have booked business class for only $411!! I couldn't believe that either and was a little bit tempted.

Sorry to hear you guys won't be at the fireworks thing. There will probably be other great viewing areas and that's at least two hours where you won't have to be subjected to me in person. :mrgreen:

In Baltimore, 'fireworks displays' are defined as 'drug dealers shooting their AK-47s into the air." :D

I'm sorry I don't recall the names, but from left to right:
Mrs Whitlow's Vacation (younger and older),
Nijel the Destroyer,
Granny Aching and the China Shepherdess (the boots were definitely Granny A)
Agnes/Perdita X Nitt
Moist von Lipwig
[and Marty Gear, who was staff, not in the contest]

There were many wonderful costumes, and many hall costumes that would have been worthy of prizes as well.
There was a magnificent Angua that I recall as well.

You were there and I didn't see you! We should have planned ahead.

Had a wonderful time! I'll try to go through pictures today.

Went through all my pictures and there are embarrassingly few from the con. :oops: Most of them are of our forays outside, touring some ships and a sub nearby. I had only one of myself in my gala dinner dress on my camera, with Mr. Tulip and Mr. Pin.
